Not that this seems like an unreasonable conclusion but it's worth
pointing out that the DSP modes only require the leading edge of the
frame clock and that the falling edge can occur at any point before the
next rising edge is due.

That approach is one I use all the time in driver development - isolate
the device as much as possible and confirm that it can at least
interoperate with itself.
